Australia and Antarctica

Population2.218 billion

LeaderThe 27th Council of the People


The Socialist Union of Australia and Antarctica is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by The 27th Council of the People with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.218 billion Austers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vostok. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Austral economy, worth 244 trillion Kupons a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 110,273 Kupons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, people caught mistreating Australia and Antarctica's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and picnickers are lucky if a few wasps are the only animals that trouble them. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Australia and Antarctica's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Atheism.

Australia and Antarctica is ranked 42,305th in the world and 2nd in North Sea Union for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 94.33 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
